Colleges Typically Evaluate Activities Holistically
When it comes to extracurriculars and college admissions, there are no hard and fast rules for success. Most colleges and universities take a holistic approach, evaluating applicants and their participation in extracurriculars on a case-by-case basis.
Underachieving and Overachieving Are Equally Detrimental
Some parents attempt to gain a competitive edge by enrolling their children in as many extracurricular activities as their schedules will allow. Other parents, frustrated with their child’s lack of engagement, give up altogether. Unfortunately, both of these approaches are neither healthy nor effective.
The Vested Academics extracurricular approach helps students explore activities that interest them and admissions committees. Here’s how . . .
With decades of experience in higher education admissions, our consulting team understands how colleges evaluate applicants and their extracurriculars and level of participation.
Cultivate new interests
By working one-on-one with students, we guide our clients toward new extracurriculars, encouraging them to try things that both utilize their strengths and lie outside of their comfort zones.
At Vested Academics, our consultants believe students who have invested some time in either observing or assisting a professional get more out of their college experiences.
